The Wall, 2006 (Spiritual Art Collection). Landscape fine art print on Fine Art German Etching paper limited by a certificate of authenticity. The certificate of authenticity is signed by the artist.
The artwork was developed from the film more than 10 years ago. We did a lot of procedures including handcraft and AI enhancement to make this paint-like Art come true, from a low-resolution photo taken 14 years ago, and make it live again on Fine Art German Etching paper. It is not perfect, but the imperfection made it Art.
Story of Artwork:
This artwork was taken with my Nikon FM2 Camera in 2006 while hiking with friends visiting The Great Wall in Beijing. I remember we planned to camp on the Wall, no internet, no iPhone, no money, and no resources at that young age. We just bought some food and water, with a big backpack, and a young braveheart, staying overnight in a chilling winter on the wild Great Wall.
The memories are sweet as the time passing and flowing. We were young, have no fear, no expectation, and embraced pure happiness at that moment. The picture of The Great Wall took the next morning after the chilling camp. The air was fresh, because of the environment, and the surreal atmosphere. I felt that we are the only humans in the world.
I captured the moment, the feelings, and the time.
That's the story of this artwork.
